Q: Hi Andrea, Could you please tell me where you get some of your school supplies? Your trays and partitions and different organizational tools all seem very helpful for living daily life. Thank you and your family. Angelina

Q: Hello Andrea, We recently began using ACE as well, and I'd like to either make some charts for using ACE (to keep track of what PACES we have, and what we need yet), and goal charts, etc... I also LOVE your font, and would love to be able to use that in plan books I...

Sometimes we all get “weary in well-doing.” Some days are exhausting. Some kids are particularly trying. I found life to be very hard when my first 3 children were all 3-years-old and under. I was exhausted. I felt like I needed to sleep for days and I spent evenings a...
